About WebHSR

WebHSR is an educational, internet based streaming video series used by orthopedic physicians and physical therapists. It was developed to meet the increasing need of patients to have a better understanding of their orthopedic and sports medicine related injuries and to encourage them to have an active role in their recovery. The series uses cutting-edge advanced 3-D animation technology to explain to patients the anatomy and pathology related to their condition. These visual images reinforce the rationale for doing their rehab exercises. In addition, we demonstrate the physical therapy exercises and diagnosis-specific techniques necessary to aid each patient in their recovery.


Our videos focus on the “why” of doing a home exercise program as well as the “how” to do the exercises. In addition, non-surgical and surgical treatment options are explained. The video topics in the series are designed to address the most common conditions seen in an orthopedic office. We update new videos every 6 months based on user feedback. All video scripts are written by a board certified, sports medicine fellowship trained orthopedic surgeon and reviewed by a doctor of physical therapy. In addition, both physician and physical therapy advisors have reviewed each video script. This peer review process assures the highest content quality of these videos. Our scripts are written in “plain language” rather than “medicalese” in order to maximize patient understanding and compliance.


The convergence of a number of factors makes this an opportune time for such a video series. Many sports medicine and orthopedic patients desire to be empowered with knowledge about their condition and have an increased role in their recovery. Patients often leave the physician’s office not fully understanding their problem or treatment plan -- in spite of the time spent trying to educate them about their condition. Similarly, when patients are sent to physical therapy to learn a home exercise program, they sometimes return to the physician’s office without understanding how to do their exercises properly or the purpose of the exercises. Managed care has created a premium on one-on-one time with patients. Technology is available to vastly improve the quality and flexibility of delivering specific information and education directly to the patient. WebHSR provides a customized and convenient solution to address these issues in the doctor-patient and clinician-patient relationship.
